Chinese history and literature

I’d like to see lessons at the advanced level on Ancient history and Literature. For example, rather than having students talk in class with vague reference to the topic, how about a lecture on 诸葛亮 or a lecture on the three kingdoms. Pick a book from the 4 great works and cover the whole book. That would be a significant amount of lessons. The more knowledge one has of the four great works, the more one catches the references made to them in modern culture, literature and tv shows. How many such references are missed due to lack of this common knowledge?
